Stay with Genesis 1

When I became serious about studying the teachings of Christian Science, I remember reading the two accounts of creation in Genesis and having a moment of inspiration. I could see that “the Science of the first record proves the falsity of the second. If one is true, the other is false, for they are antagonistic” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 522). 

In the first chapter of Genesis it says, “God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them” (verse 27). Referring to God’s entire creation, it reads, “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good” (verse 31). God saw everything He had made as “very good.”
